Greetings WA Families and Friends!
For our first installment of our Do Something Wild, Inside! campaign, our team has made a video about Leave No Trace (LNT) Principles. Leave No Trace outlines a framework of practices to support minimum impact when recreating in the outdoors. Each summer on every Wilderness Adventures trip, our Trip Leaders teach our students these techniques within both backcountry and frontcountry settings. Our students learn the importance of LNT and walk away from their summer experience, returning home to their everyday lives, as advocates for minimal impact recreation.
Do Something Wild, Inside! is about standing together and bringing the many lessons, challenges, and inspirations of a WA summer trip to our students and their families at home. In light of this, we wanted to give families access to additional LNT resources. On the LNT website there are packets to download, more information on the seven principles, and many activities and games to be played.
We look forward to hearing what you learn. Make sure to tune in to our weekly video here!
